I am looking for medical students and medical practitioners to evaluate Pocket Body, an anatomy software application developed to supplement the student learning experience while studying the musculoskeletal system.

If you are interested, please email Mark[dot]Campbell[at]PocketAnatomy[dot]com with the words StudentDoctor.net in the email subject. Please note, we have a limited number of evaluation copies available.

Thank you for your time.

With kind regards,

Background to Pocket Body:

Pocket Body has been designed to assist students in gaining a deep understanding of the human musculoskeletal system through the use of interactive high definition photo-realistic illustrations of the human body, coupled with built-in note making and self-testing capabilities.

Pocket Body differs markedly from the two-dimensional (2D) printed pictures and diagrams commonly used in the teaching of advanced human anatomy. The learning content is presented using an anatomically accurate 3D human character with nine layers of musculoskeletal content, enabling the user to navigate from the skin layer through the superficial to deep musculature, and on through to ligaments and the skeleton. Each layer contains pinned muscular, ligament and skeletal structures, which detail concise relevant information, including clinical notes.

Pocket Body has been developed in conjunction with Dr. Brendan Wilkins, an anatomy lecturer based in the NUI Galway College of Medicine and Health Sciences working with a team of third and fourth year medical students. Software design expertise within Pocket Anatomy has been combined with the subject matter expertise of NUIG's team in developing this app. It will serve as a supplement to the lectures, classes and complementary texts used by the medical and health care student and provide a detailed source of human anatomical content on demand through the students own portable device.
